Allow usernames with '@' in the admin backend
Review Request #2124 — Created Feb. 15, 2011 and submitted
Allow usernames with '@' in the admin backend It is an usual situation for LDAP servers use the mail attribute for authentication. If ReviewBoard is set up to authenticate using an email attribute, login is successful and the user data is correctly populated. Nevertheless, it is not possible to change the user field as the username is considered incorrect. This commit relaxes the restriction in the admin backend to allow for the '@' character in usernames. There is no need to perform a similar change in the frontend code as LDAP registrations do not follow the same path as basic registrations.
Performed a LDAP registration, and them modified the account in the admin backend.
